I'm Peter Reinhart! Ask Me Anything! Monday, February 15, 2016 7:00-8:00 pm EST

To kick off our AMA feature, we have invited author, chef and master bread maker and host of Pizza Quest, Peter Reinhart, to be our first host! Peter will be in the Forum on Monday, February 15th, from 7:00 - 8:00 pm EST. If you are unable to be online during the live session, you can post your questions in the sticky post. Peter will answer those questions during the live session on February 15th. You can view Peter's answers to your questions as well as what happened during the live session in the session thread.

Ask Me Anything New Forum Feature

You will notice a new forum at the top of the main page called, "Ask Me Anything". This forum will be used for live one hour "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) sessions hosted by people who are knowledgeable in different areas pertaining to wood fired ovens. How it works:
- Each AMA will have a "sticky" thread where the community can post questions they would like answered during the live session. This will allow everyone to participate even if you can't be online for the live session. These questions will not be answered by the host until the live AMA; if you need an answer quickly, you should post it in the appropriate Forum area for the community to respond.
- Another thread will be posted for the live AMA. Registered users who are logged in during the live session can interact with the host by asking questions and receiving responses.
- The live thread will remain in the AMA forum to view after the session.

We hope you enjoy this new feature! Please let us know if there is a topic that you'd like to have as an AMA and we'll look for a host!

  • For the playoffs!

    My wife took a photo of me on the day I started digging for the foundation slab. I noticed that in the photo, I had a crew cut haircut. Today, several weeks later, my hair is much longer.

    In honor of the hockey playoffs, I will not cut my hair until I have finished my oven. I better hurry, my hair is getting very unruly.

    I got it!
    In honor of the playoffs, we could make book on how long your hair will get! Or, even easier, how long it will take. We all pony up, pick a date, and whoever guesses the day on which you set the keystone takes all!

    Only problem is that, of cource, Pizza junky, you can't play - sorry.

    What do ya'all think?

      And don't laugh! In our pick-a-Pope pool a few years back, I won $50!

        And the Warriors win 49 games and don't make the playoffs.

        But what about those A's. They are young, cheap and winning. Billy Beane is the most interesting character in baseball.

          James,
          I take it you read Moneyball? Must-read for any baseball fan. Author follows Billy Beane around for a year or so and then writes the book. "Interesting character" is an understatment.

          So are you in the pool?

            I love pools. Sign me up, and let me know when to make a guess and where to send my money. Beware -- I always beat the kids. :-)

                Oh, start talking about fishing again, please...

                This post of mine also has a reason though: What's missing here is that picture with the short hair. Can't really guess about its final length unless you can see where you're starting out from.

                      You guys are too funny! Due to my difficulties getting photos posted, it might be better for you to vote on a finish date. As far as my speed goes, I'm not that fast. I spend more time thinking and rethinking than actually working. I started on 3/13/08 with digging for foundation. As of today, I only have the soldier course up. No front arch yet. I can only work on weekends, but my vacation starts on 5/1/08, so I will have 3 weeks to really get some work done then. I actually hope to be finished by 5/9/08. I hope I'm not too optimistic about the estimated finish date.
